I have an eBay watch out for 'vintage' ukuleles.
I'm just interested to see what gets sold and for how much in that category.
It doesn't help that there's actually a uke manufacturer called 'Vintage'.
Back in the dim dark past, probably about fifty years ago now, I had a ukulele.
I played it incessantly till, at about eight years old, I came home form school to find the neck had been snapped off it.
My eBay search alerted me to a ukulele that, in my mind's eye, looks vaguely similar to the one I'm playing in my memory.
It has a blue label in the sound hole proclaiming it's manufacture in the Peoples Republic of China and comes with its original (tatty) box.
I expected this uke to sell for somewhere in the region of £80-£90 so felt safe putting a 'flutter' bid in at
£30 via a sniper.
I forgot about it until I received the email telling me I'd won the auction:
Before I can say anything about this uke I have to fit a set of Aquila strings.
